The Romance Saga Part II ~ 9's Guide to Guys

*Casey Crow's note: This is the second installment of love advice via my young daughter that oddly enough correlates remarkably well to the adult world.

Well, the good news is that 9 (my daughter's age) was delighted to learn that she will be teaching the world about romance when I mentioned I'd blogged about her. Okay, first of all, isn't it just weird that kids even know and understand what a blog is when us adults are still trying to figure it out? Anyway, she would like to impart on us her findings of the past week:

 1. Nice boys are gentlemen.
The crush gave up his seat to her at lunch so she could sit by a girlfriend. sweet.

 2. Get a friend to get the scoop.
More on this later, as the testing period is still underway, but haven't we all at one time or another had a third party intercede to find out it "he likes me"?

3. Liking a boy makes you feel kinda weird. You get butterflies in your tummy like you're about to throw up and when you see him, you freeze.
 9 poses like a statue here for full effect while explaining this phenomenon. The freezing is the equivalent of your breathing hitching which I'm sure has all happened when the crush walks in - especially when his appearances was unexpected, and you are hopefully looking your best.

4. You have weird dreams about him.
I figured it wise for my mental health not to delve too deeply here as 9 is quiet imaginative. But the kid makes a good point because who among us hasn't awaken a little hot and a little bit sweaty?

To be continued...

Casey, this is absolutely charming! The heart of what romance is all about, no matter how old you are.

A good reminder for all of us.
